Description
The Cooper Tires USF2000 Series an accessible American open wheel series officially sanctioned by INDYCAR, is a popular proving ground for ambitious drivers wanting to progress to the next level.

The USF2000 car, powered by Mazda, from Van Diemen is an excellent entry-level low-downforce car. It’s grippy, yet nimble. While it can be tail happy at times, it remains catchable and is always rewarding to throw around. We’ve enjoyed some very close, smile-on-your-face, wheel-to-wheel racing testing out the limits of the USF2000. Daring overtakes and massive trail braking really show off it’s capabilities.

The 2016 spec USF2000 uses Van Diemen/Elan DP08 chassis and is powered by Mazda's MZR 2 liter, 4 cylinder DOHC engine with fuel-injectors, tuned by Elite Engines to 170 hp thus capable of achieving a top speed of about 150 mph.

The car is available in two classes: the Championship class with a 5 speed sequential gearbox, and the slightly lower tier National class, with two transmission choices – the 5 speed (same as in the Championship class, but with a 50 lb weight penalty) and an older, 4 speed H-shifter variant available with three different final ratios.

Nice mod! One of the best! I would love to see a 540 degree wheel range (lock) option too. Now it stops in 480 and it is quite snappy

Is this car already using point based accelerations in QSA tire model that fixes the issue:

Anybody else feels that the engines sounds are waaaay too low on this one?.. Just feels odd :steamfacepalm:

Many of us are very fond of the RF2 platform and have already bought GT3 packages to feel the high quality! Thank you very much for my commitment to the development of formula racing car, and I particularly support the F1 fans as F1 fans!
But I prefer the F1 equation more. Will the F1 car be produced in the future? When will the new UI and weather system come? RF2's future is worth looking forward to, come on, thank you!

At low speeds this car doesn't make any sense at all. 40kph tank slappers and exiting corners at 20% throttle loops it no matter what. As someone who actually races an F2000 in real life i can tell you it doesn't drive anything like this POS.

Downloaded this one a while ago, but felt I should comment on just how challenging, but fun, this little car is to drive. Thank you guys for the work you put into keeping this sim alive!
